'Pirates' Friday: est. $55.5 million

Good Swashbucklin' Grief! I didn't go see Pirates 2: Dead Man's Chest on Friday, I missed a showing with some friends on Saturday, but I will see it this afternoon though!(Sunday) But over at Box Office Mojo.com they have the Friday est. of $55.5 million!!! This would be about $5.5 million more than the current single day record held by Revenge of the Sith @ $$50,013,859

I'm going to catch it later today and help contribute to the opening weekend results that are currently estimated to exceed Spider Man's top rank of $114,844,116... this is interesting because if you watch HBOs Entourage, at the start of the current 3rd season, Vince Chase stars in James Cameron's Auquaman and storyline wraps around the opening weekend results and if it will beat out Spiderman for the top spot...
Huge letters spread across two pages in the publication declared that the new James Cameron film "Aquaman," starring Vincent Chase, was the "biggest box office splash in history," racking up an astounding $116 million in its opening weekend, The Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.

What the as did not mention is that "Aquaman" is a movie in the HBO fictional universe of "Entourage," which follows the travails of Chase, as played by Adrian Grenier, a young star who is flanked at all times by his brother and two childhood friends.

Chump Change, the Pirates 2 weekend booty is estimated to be $132,028,000, Land Ho!
